‘China is a Threat to Democracy’

The threat China poses to the rest of the world doesn’t come from its cheap exports but rather the “dooming of ,” former Hong Kong Governor has told the BBC.

Lord Patten said China promoted the idea that one could get rich without needing democracy – and such an idea posed a threat to the West.

He said regional bodies such as Asean should be strengthened so they could do more to tackle regional problems.

Lord Patten was mobbed by fans while in Hong Kong to promote his latest book.
